HALL ROAD DtSASTER LESSONS OF AN ELECTRIC I TRAIN SMASH I Colonel Druitt, in his omcia.1 report on the disastrous accident at Hall Road, on the Lan- cashire and YorkshjTe Railwa-y, when twenty people were killed and 47 inj-ured by a,n electric expToOOs colliding with an empty tra.in, aays tha.t th-e accident was due to inadver- tence in leaving the &i<Hn.s' points in the wrong position, and then to disregajd of rules on Hie part of the signalman, and to dis- regard of rules fand r&ckless driving by the driver of the express. The only lesson to be learnt from the disas- ter, Colonel Druitt says, is the vcry old one of the llecJ.c'ssity a.t a.U times of complying exactly with all ruLss acd reg-ulationa. So far aa can be g-a-there<t from the nrst.bad colli- sion on an electric railway, there would seem. to be no extra, da-nger of fire occurring among the derailed coaches than on a railway worked by steam.
